Lawyer in long fight for former Abu Ghraib detainees

Abu GhraibA Detroit-area lawyer has been fighting for almost a decade to win compensation for four men who spent time in Iraq's notorious Abu Ghraib prison.

CACI Premier Technology, a Virginia company that handled interrogations at Abu Ghraib, has asked a federal judge to dismiss Shereef Akeel's lawsuit, the Detroit Free Press reported Thursday. A hearing is scheduled Friday in Arlington, Va.

Akeel first became involved with Abu Ghraib in 2004 when a man named Saleh visited his law office in Troy, Mich., and described beatings and torture at a prison in Iraq. After seeing the man's story confirmed by a report on "60 Minutes," Akeel traveled to Iraq to interview detainees.

The lawsuit has faced a number of hurdles. Three of Akeel's clients have been barred from flying to the United States to give depositions. CACI has said they are on the "no-fly" list as known or suspected terrorists.
